For The Win
|Roster has joined a new organization.|
|For The Win|
For The Win was a Taiwanese competitive League of Legends team which was representing Taiwan to join 2011 World Cyber Games. After WCG 2011, the team was acquired by Garena and renamed Taipei Assassins.
Formation of Team FTW
While playing in the League of Legends ranked solo queue ladder, AD Carry MiSTakE met and befriended Stanley, a Top lane player. Shortly after connecting, their mutual friend colalin introduced to them to NeXAbc and former Counter Logic Gaming player Lilballz. Also around this time, Mid laner A8000 was introduced to the players. Together they formed Team For the Win, with MiSTakE as team captain.
Team For the Win's first event together was Garena's G1 eSports competition. At the tournament, Team FTW took first place ahead of 150 other teams to qualify for the 2011 World Cyber Games.
Unfortunately, at the 2011 World Cyber Games, Team For the Win was unable to make it through the group stage. They fell just short of the top two advancement requirement with a third place finish in their group. They posted a 2-2 record after defeating Team Jantelaget and Orange eSports and losing to NaJin e-mFire and Millenium and the Mid laner A8000 left the team after 2011 World Cyber Games.
Transformation to Taipei Assassins
Despite early elimination at the 2011 World Cyber Games, online game distribution company Garena took notice of Team FTW's strong performance and offered to become the official sponsor of the team. On March 9 of 2012, Garena acquired the roster of Team For the Win and renamed them "Taipei Assassins".
